Paul Millsap said that the Hawks never even made him a contract offer.
Wow. The Hawks were expected to make it a "priority" to bring Millsap back to Atlanta, so it's odd that they didn't fight to keep their All-Star PF. Millsap is 32 years and signed a three-year, $90 million deal with Denver, so the Hawks probably didn't want to commit to that type of money since they are nowhere close to being a contender anymore. The Hawks will have to bring in some frontcourt depth this summer, but rookie John Collins is already on the radar as a sleeper in deeper formats. The Millsap departure is also good news for the fantasy value of Taurean Prince. Jul 3 - 12:58 PM

Paul Millsap and the Nuggets have agreed to a three-year, $90 million deal, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

The Suns and Wolves withdrew from the chase over the past few days, and Millsap's new pairing with Nikola Jokic creates a fascinating frontcourt. From a fantasy perspective, Millsap should benefit from Jokic's passing and the fluid-passing attack in Denver, allowing him to bounce back from a sub-par 2016-17 fantasy campaign. The Hawks' frontcourt, meanwhile, is in disarray, with Miles Plumlee and rookie John Collins as their only true big men. The biggest-name free agents are signing quickly and there's been a lot of movement over the past 48 hours, so we should see dominoes fall in rapid succession as we approach July 4th.

Paul Millsap's meeting in Denver reportedly "went well" and lasted for several hours.

It's rare to hear about a meeting that doesn't go well, so this still doesn't mean much. However, with the Suns and Wolves no longer chasing Millsap, the Nuggets could be considered the heavy favorites. It's fun to imagine a frontcourt pairing of Millsap and Nikola Jokic, and while that would likely give the Nuggets the ammunition to get back into the playoffs, it also means they would have to let Danilo Gallinari go.

The Wolves "may be out" on talks for Paul Millsap, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge.

In case you missed it a few moments ago, the Suns are out, so that may put the Nuggets in the catbird seat for now. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports that owner Josh Kroenke, president Tim Connelly, coach Mike Malone and Gary Harris will be in Atlanta to pitch Millsap -- Gary Harris really does do everything. There's always some concern of a mystery team, but it may be a two-horse race with the Hawks and Nuggets. Millsap would obviously be a great fit next to Nikola Jokic. Another positive here is the lack of competition could help the Nuggets keep the years down or not have to go all the way to max.

The Suns are out on the Paul Millsap pursuit, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

Sam Amick of USA Today adds Millsap is still expected to meet with Denver tonight. Woj notes that the Suns are going to keep their cap space open and hope to take on salary to go with some young assets or picks -- this is the move Sam Hinkie used to get picks from the Kings a few years ago. With the Suns out, that leaves the Wolves, Nuggets and Hawks as the frontrunners for the 2017 All-Star. The Wolves would likely have to make some moves to fit Sapper in the cap.

According to Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders, Paul Millsap has a meeting scheduled with the Timberwolves on Saturday.

Frank Isola of the New York Daily News reported on Friday that the Wolves and Nuggets were considered the frontrunners to land Millsap. If Minnesota were able to sign Millsap, they would boast a supremely impressive starting five, featuring Jeff Teague, Jimmy Butler, Andrew Wiggins, Paul Millsap and Karl-Anthony Towns. Unfortunately, Millsap's fantasy value would take a big hit if he moved from Atlanta to Minnesota.
Jul 1 - 11:11 AM

According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, the Nuggets and Wolves are the frontrunners to sign free agent All-Star Paul Millsap.

Another All-Star could be headed West, as the Kings and Suns are reportedly in the mix as well. The Hawks initially said that their top priority was to bring Millsap back to Atlanta, but now it sounds like they won't be able to meet his asking price. In terms of fantasy value, Minnesota would be the toughest spot for Millsap to produce early-round numbers.
Jun 30 - 11:53 PM

Paul Millsap will meet with the Suns after the NBA free agency moratorium period begins Saturday, according to John Gambadoro of 98.7 Arizona Sports.

The Suns are also expected to meet with Blake Griffin on Saturday, so they look to be players for some free agent forwards. Millsap is 32 years old, so the Hawks may not want to offer him a five-year max. That could make it tougher on them to come to terms and would take away one of their biggest advantages.
Jun 29 - 5:52 PM

The Kings, Nuggets and Suns will reportedly pursue Paul Millsap as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Millsap is fully expected to opt out of his contract in order to hit the open market this summer, and there's sure to be more than a few teams added to this list as we get deeper into free agency. The Hawks have reportedly begun to put out some feelers regarding potential sign-and-trade scenarios, which hints that the Atlanta franchise may be prepared to begin going through a rebuild. The Nuggets have long been interested in Millsap, and given they can afford to offer him a max deal, they look like one of the early frontrunners to potentially secure the All-Star forwards services.

Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk hinted that he may not offer Paul Millsap a max contract this summer.

"We are going to make Paul our best offer," Schlenk said. "Will he have better offers? I don’t know. Do we want to keep Paul? Sure." Interesting. Schlenk recently said one of his top priorities is bringing back Millsap, but he admitted that he might get "better offers than we can make him." Millsap is entering his age-33 season, so it's understandable why the Hawks may not want to sign him to a max deal that could be as much as $205 million over five years. Opposing teams can offer Millsap four-year deals worth up to $152 million, so it will be interesting to see what the market looks like for the All-Star PF.
Jun 15 - 10:03 AM

General manager Travis Schlenk said one of his top priorities is bringing back Paul Millsap.

This is about as obvious as it gets. Millsap is going to become an unrestricted free agent and should have plenty of suitors. He is 32 years old, so the Hawks may not want to offer him a five-year deal because the back end of that likely will be a tough pill to swallow.

According to The Vertical, Paul Millsap has opted out of his $21.4 million contract for the 2017-18 season and will become a free agent.

The 32-year-old All-Star is arguably the top power forward available this summer and should be able to command a max deal. Millsap has said that he would like to re-sign with Atlanta and the Hawks have made it clear that bringing him back is their top priority, but he could potentially walk with the Hawks getting nothing in return (just like Al Horford did last summer). Millsap averaged 18.1 points, 7.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.9 blocks and 1.1 triples on 44.2 percent shooting this season, but he had trouble staying healthy and appeared in just 69 games.
May 22 - 12:07 PM

Paul Millsap said he wants to re-sign with the Hawks this summer.

"I want to be here," Millsap said. "I think talks have been pretty good. ... It's something me, my agent and my family have got to sit down and talk about." Millsap already confirmed that he will "most likely" opt out of his player option and become a free agent, but the Hawks are "going to make every effort imaginable to keep him" according to team owner Tony Ressler. Head coach Mike Budenholzer said he's "incredibly optimistic and incredibly committed to Paul," so the Hawks have made their intentions pretty clear. A max contract offer seems likely for the 32-year-old All-Star.

Paul Millsap admitted he will "most likely" opt out of his player option.

The writing was on the wall for this one as Millsap looks to get one more big pay day. He did say he loved Atlanta, but a lot of teams will likely be after the 32-year-old Millsap. He was in what was close to a perfect spot for his stat output, so a change of scenery would likely hurt his fantasy value.
Apr 29 - 2:57 PM

Paul Millsap said he would "take some time" before deciding whether or not to exercise his player option.

"These last four years have been great. Can't ask for nothing more," said Millsap. "Now I will take some time, relax and see what happens." He has a $21.4 million player option for the 2017-18 season. However, he'll have the opportunity a sign a new deal for well over $100 million thus summer, so opting out is a no-brainer. The only real question is whether he chooses to re-sign with the Hawks or land elsewhere.
